A maiden medal at the Asian Games and breaking into the world’s top 5 remain on his radar but Lakshya Sen’s first priority is to extend his rich vein of form at the World Championships.
Lakshya counts on recent form to win medal at World C'ships

GUWAHATI: And, he is counting on his recent showing to deliver the goods.

After enduring a rough patch, Sen turned around his fortune with a title-winning run in Canada in July and followed it up with two semifinal finishes at the US Open and Japan Open.

The 21-year-old from Almora, who claimed a maiden bronze at the World Championships in 2021, will hope to secure another medal when he begins his campaign in Copenhagen, Denmark on August 21.

“World Championships being just a week ahead, I feel the past tournaments which I played will really help me go into the tournament,” Sen told PTI on the sidelines of the inauguration of Badminton Association of India’s National Centre of Excellence here.
